Data Centers: How Much Containment is Enough?

Data Centers: How Much Containment is Enough?

Achieving an optimum degree of airflow containment cannot be reached through a one-size-fits-all solution. The true measurement of any containment solution is dependent upon using a Hot Aisle, Cold Aisle or Cabinet Containment strategy that has been optimized for airflow, static pressure, leakage, bypass air and temperature variance. Detailed in a new whitepaper from Chatsworth […]
